Winter is now well and truly underway and so dressing for warmth has become a definite necessity. But dressing warmly for the winter while still looking cute and fashionable is sometimes a daunting task, with many of us feeling like we’ve managed to resemble a marshmallow instead. We love these tips on looking stylish in winter from Just The Design, but another thing we come back to year after year is faux fur.
Faux fur lends itself perfectly to the cold winter months, as it can help to keep us nice and snuggly and warm, makes a statement in the fashion department, while also being ethical and kind to animals. Faux fur itself dates back to the early 20th century, and thankfully these days this tactile fabric is popular all over the world. You can read more about the history of faux fur here!
We’ve put together this post to show you how you can go about adding faux fur into your wardrobe for this winter if it’s something you’ve not dabbled with before in years gone by, or a couple of different ways you can wear it, should you wish to give your wardrobe an update this year.
The faux fur coat
This one is a classic, and most definitely something of a fashion statement. The faithful faux fur jacket has been around for a very long time and is a staple in the wardrobe of anyone who loves to be super snuggly and warm for the winter.
These days there isn’t much of a limit when it comes to the colours and styles available, and you can bag yourself anything from a bright pink crop to a faux leopard coat that reaches your ankles. There’s something to suit every individual’s personal style when it comes to the faux fur jacket!
Faux fur headband
If you’re looking to incorporate faux fur into your outfits in a more minimal way, then a faux fur headband is a perfect solution. Keep your ears warm and rock the faux fur trend in a way that is both stylish and extremely practical.
For something completely different, why not opt for faux fur accents? You can achieve this by opting for faux fur accessories, such as a faux fur bag, or even garments that incorporate faux fur in an original way.
We absolutely love this faux fur detail jumper dress from Missy Empire, as it’s just such a unique way to incorporate faux fur into a look, and it just looks like the most comfortable thing to wear in the world but without being boring!
You could also look out for items of clothing with a faux fur trim, such as dresses and footwear! Or simply carry around a faux fur pom pom key ring if you want to go for super subtle.
We hope this has given you a couple of ideas of how you can wear faux fur this winter and incorporate it into your own wardrobe in a way that suits your own personal style!
